DIY: Painted Luminaries



By: Chelsea Fuss
You will need:
  • White paper bags
  • Acrylic paint
  • Paintbrush
  • Number stencils (for table numbers)
  • Painter's tape
  • LED votive lights
For the striped bags:
Place strips of painters tape horizontally or vertically on flat bags, Measure to space them about an 1.5" a part. Paint in between the tape and then let it dry. Take the tape off when dry. Open bag and place LED lights inside.
For Numbered bags:
Place stencil on flat bag and paint. Once dry, open bag and place light inside!
Line a stairway with the luminaries, mix and match them for a centerpiece or line your wedding aisle with them!
The hand-painted stripes look gorgeous when illuminated.
Total cost is $1.50 a piece including lights!
These hand-painted luminaries make a charming wedding decoration and a cheaper alternative to lanterns.
